Our 5-step program to much cleaner and finally (almost) zero impact free flying. Not just carbon free. Step 5 will leave almost nothing but water vapor behind.

MS-1 Legacy – the existing MS-1 airframe with two major advancements:

A

The structure will be all carbon fiber. No more structural parts made from fiberglass.  This means reduced weight at increased structural strength.

B

MS-1L will be powered the new Rotax 915 isC. The engine’s performance is comparable to the O-320 at ground level, however it runs much cleaner and uses lead free gas. More than 50% carbon footprint reduction.

The pure electric version. Today’s battery capacity is not there yet to allow for the endurance or range needed for many applications. However, the advantages and limits of electric flight need to be seriously investigated in actual applications.

There is a demand for limited endurance aircraft in the flight school market. Many training flights can be kept at 90 minutes or less and will return to the home base where the airplane can be recharged to be in the air again within an hour or less.

A range extender will make the electric airplane useful for long missions. Emissions will still be much lower than from conventional aircraft.

We are working on a range extender based on the rotary engine concept. It will use Jet-A. It is available everywhere. This solution will help mitigate the infrastructure problems associated with the withdrawal of AvGas 100LL from the market.

The next evolutionary step, a rotary engine driving the propeller and using Jet-A as its fuel. Rotary engines are notorious for their poor efficiency and bad exhaust emission values. Both problems are connected. We are working to solve both with one stroke using laser ignition.

A solution that solves the upcoming problems caused by phasing out AvGas 100LL.

The final step: A rotary engine lends itself to run on hydrogen – much more than a piston engine. We are working on a solution where the hydrogen is not stored in high pressure tanks or liquid – at −423.17 °F or even lower. We will store the hydrogen in solid state. The stored hydrogen will not be flammable or explosive. It will be temperature stable up to 750 °F.

The exhaust will be almost nothing but water vapor. The amounts of nitrogen oxides are considered small, and we are working to reduce or eliminate them totally.

Hydrogen can be created in an environmentally sustainable way. And it can be stored in a solid state, not flammable and stable at high and low temperatures.

This is the new technology our partner Plasma Kinetics is developing:

Plasma Kinetics
  • Film stored in external canister
  • Film rolls up in internal canister
  • Light shines on ½ of film
  • Hydrogen is released to fuel cell
  • Lasers shift to other ½ of film
  • Film rolls back to external canister
  • Light on ½ of film on roll-back
  • Hydrogen is released to fuel cell
  • Laser canister moves
  • Next film section rolls up
  • Process repeats three times
  • 1 internal for 2 external canisters
